7 Days of Monkey Mayhem

One week to WorldCon starts.

The Librarian character in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series gets transformed into an orang-utan.   He takes great personal offense when people refer to him as a monkey.  Chimps and orang-utans are apes not monkeys.  But still…

One of the early episodes of The Simpsons features Homer being mistaken for the missing link and Bigfoot.  In another episode Bart expresses a desire to create a half-man, half-monkey creature.

Oliver the Chimp is a short documentary about the so-called humanzee – the spooky looking bald chimp that walked upright and was believed by some to be some kind of weird human-ape hybrid.
